Safer to avoid

If only on the basis that winch cables are to all intent and purpose invisible, and a glider on launch has a more restricted forward view, then the 'safest' option is to avoid the area to the side.
Of course it may well be that 'other aviation non gliding activities' will happen at LR so that is why they wish to sanitise more space.
It becomes confusing when you have an ATZ but no ATC to notify of activity, and the notam system is not a reliable medium to cover this, as it is already overloaded with an excess of info.
The most important thing is the Cadets have a Gliding site again.
